Salmon a la Heaven

Guys, Holy Moses did i ever cook one bang on today.

Went river fishing Saturday and caught us a nice 8 to 10 lb salmon. Fileted it and marinated in a white wine, balsamic and maple syrup recipe for 48h.

Cooked on a cedar plank, covered with lemon slices, drizzled extra juices overtop, kept dome at at 375F to 400F with Applewood smoke via pellets. 

Took probably 30 minutes for I'd say 4 lbs of fillets.

Then while hot off the grill, melted chunks of butter on top and drizzled Himalayan salt ... added some fresh oregano branches and served.

My oh my oh my.

It was heavenly bliss.

    Looks awesome.  I'd definitely eat more than my share.

    Got it at a river that is closed to me in Oakville, Ontario.  They are a'runin! Probably another 1 to 2 weeks before they are all gone!

    Very few people ever get the chance to eat salmon that fresh. Beautiful!
    But could you actually taste the salmon with all the stuff you put on it?
    Thank you,

    Let me put it this way ... it was a perfect blend of everything. You could taste a bit of salmon, some of the cedar, and some of the wine marinade ... wine marinade taste seemed to be prominent on top, while the cedar on the bottom, and the salmon in the middle ... so when you got a full cross section of the salmon and put it in your mouth ... that is where my brain checked out for a second and flew over to orgasmic rolling fields of bliss.

    Put it this way, my mother-in-law and wife DO NOT eat fresh water fish. My 12 year old thinks everything but chicken fingers and pizza is gross ... well, they all ate it, and said it was one of the best fish dishes they ever tasted.
